PA10 - Hematite on Albite with Titanite - SOLD
Tormiq valley, Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
Size: 11.6 x 8.5 x 3.2 cm

Beautiful!! This was the first word that came to my mind as I saw this rock the first time. This specimen is really unbelievable fine, because it has so many hematites sitting very well on the crytallized matrix of albites. Normally you can be lucky to have even one hematite on matrix, however on this plate there are many on it! The small titanites in combination complete the beauty of this specimen. The luster of the "iron roses" is really great and the best you can look for. All the hematites are completely perfect and you cannot find even the smallest damage. I cannot remember that I have ever seen such a fine hematite from Pakistan.
